    Yep, that's why I went with the compact CB. Time will tell if I made the right choice. No external speaker yet but seems plenty loud so far. The red accents on your jeep look good.

    I've had no issue with loudness Although it just sounds liked people are talking from a bottom of a hole. Thanks on the accents.

    Thanks. The main part was easy. The stenciling of the logos in black was a pita. Liking the end result though.

    Op. What's up next on your build.

    Yea seems pretty tedious but looks good. Right now I'm saving up for wheels and tires. Got my eyes set on Interco Birddogs and either Toyo MT's or Trail Grapplers. But you know how things change. My suspension and axle shafts have been patiently waiting in the garage for me to install.

    Thanks. I used the Maximus 3 winch plate. Install was easy and it's a clean look. I also just cut the factory filler trim between the bumper and grille instead of buying filler plates. I went with the winch due to budget as you said. So far I've only used it a handful of times but haven't had any issues. I know a few guys running the XRC series and they've held up to years of abuse. Woulda gone with the warn if the budget allowed though.

    Today I finally got around to installing my front chromo axle shafts. Short side was kind of a bitch. First the axle nut didn't want to come off. Impact struggled for a bit which had me worried. Threads all looked good, weren't galled up or anything. All I can think is the factory went overboard on lock-tite on that side. Next, the yokes on the new shaft wouldn't fit through the knuckle. Had to clearance them a c-hair with the grinder. Didn't like doing that but I took off very little. Maybe like a mil on each side. Rather do that than drop the knuckle. Passenger side went smoothly, no issues. And now I have two complete trail spares!

    Tires and wheels are next on the docket. The Jeep should be growing up here in the next month or so.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
